    Two Woonsocket, Rhode Island residents are dead after what police called a murder-suicide in a home on Sept. 30, 2018.

    Members of a Rhode Island community are fundraising for the Woonsocket boy who survived what police called a murder-suicide involving his parents.

    Organizers of the fundraiser say they've raised more than $22,000 for the boy. Glenn Benvenuti, 56, shot and killed his ex-wife, 45-year-old Michelle Benvenuti, before killing himself on Sept. 30.

    Responding police found them dead, but found the boy alive and unharmed. The child is currently in the care of relatives.
